We are an independent mental health charity that offers friendly, accessible support and information to promote mental health and wellbeing in the Stockport and adjacent area.

Set up by a group of volunteers in 1971, we are affiliated with national Mind, one of the leading mental health charities in England and Wales.

Despite this affiliation, we are an independent charity who are dedicated to helping and supporting the people of Stockport and adjacent area to look after their mental wellbeing. We are overseen by a board of Trustees, with services delivered by paid staff and volunteers, a number of which have accessed our vast range of skills and knowledge for either themselves or a loved one.

Our mission is to:

Stockport and District Mind works towards a society where anyone who experiences poor mental health is supported, empowered to reach their full potential and free from stigma and discrimination.


The charity’s aims are to provide advice, advocacy, support and services to all people resident in the Stockport Metropolitan Borough and adjacent areas who are experiencing poor mental health, to enable and empower them to live with, manage and where possible recover from their condition. It will also support their family, friends, and carers.
